比国会议员蹿升得更快

伦敦—这是鸟!这是飞机!不,这是超级政治人(Supra-politician)。但是,和英雄漫画不同,当超级政治人掌握权力时,他也许并不会拯救世界。

这类领导人的出现是一个相对较新的现象,正在改变整个西方的政治格局。如今,起着领头羊作用的超级政治人,是截然不同的两位总统——法国的马克龙和美国的特朗普。

直到几十年前,民主领导人需要一轮一轮沿着选举的阶梯往上爬,经历零售式政治(retail politics)、树桩演讲和集合大多数工作阶级的要求等历练。在美国,这意味着几乎每位总统都曾在国会任职或有州长经历,当代唯一的例外是艾森豪威尔,他凭借陆军上将的军衔代替从政经验。

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls.

If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California.

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.
